One of the first major races running at the Gold Coast this Saturday will be the 2014 Magic Millions Stayers Cup, betting tips and exotic selections for which are detailed below.

Set to run as the Gold Coast Race 2 at 12:55pm (local) this year’s $170,000 Oracle Magic Millions Stayers Cup (1800m) features a full field of 14 starters plus five emergencies awaiting an early scratching to make the line-up.

It is one of these yet-to-be-assured-of-a-run hopes that sits at the top of the current Magic Millions Stayers Cup betting markets with Tamariz paying $4.

Gai Waterhouse’s Tiger Hill four-year-old has their first look at a track outside of Sydney here but is far from assured of a run as the third emergency.

That’s a shame for connections as they do look the one to beat if they get in. Last start on December 18 they enjoyed an all-too-easy five length victory over 1900m at Canterbury carrying 58kg.

They’d be going down to 54kg for this and dropping 100m making them a flying chance.

Following them are then Les Kelly’s locally-trained Choisir mare Scorpio Queen ($4.40) coming off a win in the Listed Bernborough Handicap (1625m) at Toowoomba on New Year’s Eve and the Liam Birchely-trained Black Jet ($4.80) who shoots for their third win on the trot having won their past two at Doomben over the mile.

The other single figure fancies getting the bookies’ and punters’ attention are then Husson four-year-old Hi Son ($5.50), Tony Gollan’s Queensland Derby failure Trakstar ($6), the Bryan Guy-trained Noisy Ocean ($7), and veteran nine-year-old Pepperwood ($9) who won the Coffs Harbour Cup in August and who comes off a close Bernborough Handicap third.

So will one of these better fancied hopes in the field get the job done?

Or should punters be looking at an outsider for an upset Magic Millions Stayers Cup result from a horse like Scone-based six-year-old Kaypers ($11) or Bruce Hill’s honest five-year-old Dazzle Us ($18)?

1st

#8 Black Jet ($4.80)

Really like the form of this Brisbane galloper, so much so we think they should be the favourite. Barrier is good as they’ll come into six with the emergencies out, but even 10 would work. Hasn’t finished out of the money this time in with two thirds and two wins, most recently in a class 6 over 1630m at Doomben two weeks ago. Class rise here but is only lightly raced and on the improve. Winning form up to 1800m (Sunshine Coast) so distance isn’t an issue. One to watch in the winter is our guess.

2nd

#10 Hi Son ($5.50)

Think on the 54kg minimum they’ll be improving on a last start fifth as the beaten favourite at this track and distance. Looking to atone that run and could come close having seen the distance now. There was two lengths in in last start, before which they won over the Doomben mile.

3rd

#1 Borehole ([link text=”$21″])

Few things working against this David Lawlor-trained grey here including barrier 18 (into 13 with all emergencies out) and the 59kg topweight. However we aren’t writing them off completely even after their last start seventh over 2200m two weeks ago. Two back won at Doomben over 2100m and it’s that form we’re tipping you’ll see on Saturday. Haven’t raced over this short a distance since October but they won over the mile then on the back of a 2200m effort (4th) so it could be to their liking to drop back again for this.
